A loan helped to raise and fatten pigs for sale.


María's story

María is a hard-working and responsible woman. She works looking after backyard animals.

She mentions that she already has pigs in her work project but wants to increase her pig production, so she applies for a loan to buy three pigs, concentrated feed, vitamins and dewormers.

She sells the final product from her own home to obtain more profits and in this way to cover her home needs.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer E. Power.


This loan is special because:

It empowers farmers to diversify, and thus stabilize, their families' sources of income.
